Bravo’s 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Returns February 12

December 21, 2018
Bravo Media’s “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” returns for season nine on Tuesday, February 12 at 9pmET/PT. Erika Girardi, Dorit Kemsley, Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave, Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, and Lisa Vanderpump are joined by new housewife Denise Richards and friend Camille Grammer for a jaw-dropping season sprinkled with exhilarating highs and shocking lows. The epitome of a working mom – perfectly blending her carefree California attitude with the glamour of a Hollywood actress – newcomer Denise uses her very-direct demeanor to carve out a place amongst the opinionated group, which she finds is both a blessing and a curse. 



This season, the stakes are higher than ever for each of the ladies, and while there is no shortage of laughs, they are forced to navigate a string of confrontations that could change the dynamic of the friends group forever. Following her brother’s recent passing, Lisa Vanderpump puts all her energy into her family, work demands and maintaining a positive attitude. Kyle is settling into her new house after a well-publicized robbery and sending her daughter Sophia off to college, all while trying to determine the future of her Beverly Hills clothing store. Feeling like she’s found her mojo, Dorit is expanding her swimwear line to include a lifestyle brand, but working against tight deadlines makes her realize she may have bitten off more than she can chew. Meanwhile, Erika takes the ultimate leap of faith – and financial risk – when she embarks on an Erika Jayne National Tour, hoping her fans will show up to support her. As her business flourishes into a multi-million dollar empire, the always-on-the-go Teddi must adjust to the newfound pressures of running her company while simultaneously maintaining her supermom status. Lisa Rinna begins to wonder if acting still excites her, while coping with an empty household, as her husband is constantly traveling and her model daughters are getting ready to leave the nest. Camille is prepping for her wedding day and though she is more than ready to leave the past behind, moving forward might not be as easy as she had hoped.

Season eight of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” delivered 3.0MM total viewers on Live+7, and was Bravo’s top show of the year for Video on Demand with nearly 820K average views per episode across set-top-box and TV Everywhere platforms.

“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” is produced by Evolution Media for Bravo with Douglas Ross, Alex Baskin, Christopher Cullen, and John Carr serving as executive producers. Andy Cohen also serves as an executive producer.

'Timeless' Cast on Tonight's Series Finale and Favorite Episodes

"Timeless" stars (L-R):  Abigail Spencer as Lucy Preston, Malcolm Barrett as Rufus Carlin, Matt Lanter as Wyatt Logan

Fan favorite series "Timeless" comes to a close Thursday, December 20 at 8:00 p.m. on NBC. The series ends with a Two-Part finale movie that promises to answer all our Rittenhouse questions and race to save Malcolm. 

During the episode entitled, "The Miracle of Christmas Part I/II," Christmas arrives in the Bunker, the Time Team is inspired by a visit from their future selves to find a way to try to save Rufus (Malcolm Barrett).  But when the Mothership jumps to 1848 California, they're forced to put those plans on hold and chase Rittenhouse back to the Gold Rush, where they encounter one of the era's most dangerous villains. Then chasing the Mothership to Korea in the winter of 1950, our team helps a stranded, pregnant refugee attempt to escape a tragic fate. Stuck with no way out, our team faces its toughest challenge yet, and in the process, come to terms with their feelings for each other. 

The series also stars Abigail Spencer, Matt Lanter, Goran Višnjic, Sakina Jaffrey, Paterson Joseph, and Claudia Doumit.

TVMusic Network caught up with the Time Team trio Malcolm Barrett (Rufus), Abigail Spencer (Lucy) and Matt Lanter (Wyatt) about their time in the series and slightly tease what's ahead for the time as the series comes to a close. 

Matt Lanter: Jessica is back - causing a lot of heartache. We deal with her in a way that is good. It’s a holiday special so we get  to see all the Christmas tropes where you see what happens with this family as opposed to the normal real life family  and how they deal with traveling through time - being in love, losing a family member and trying to find the ones you lost. All of those ideas along with the big chases sprinkled in, the fights and the travelling not just to America but other places and seeing how that is played historically that you’ve come to love about 'Timeless' happens."


Abigail Spencer: We visit two more historical time periods where one takes place on Christmas Eve and one of Christmas day. These things that I didn’t even know about.

When asked about their favorite episodes over the course of the series, the trio is happy to share. 

Malcolm Barrett: The episode with Robert Johnson was marked as his favorite. It paid off because I got to work with Paterson [Joseph] (Conner). That was our behind the scenes patterns and acting styles. He’s more Shakespearean in tone and it put him front and center. We got to see these two characters dynamics and their father and son relationship that had sort of been the backstory.

Abigail Spencer: One of my favorite things. Mine was when we got a new time team member. Claudia Doumit that plays Gia was a part of the time team but the finale. She’s’ so awesome. She and I doing the Reagan thing. It was fun to have her in the fold. It was her first television show and she was fantastic. It was fun for us because he had been working together for a while and it also brought up our next.

Matt Lanter: One of the best episodes ever was the 80s episode where we bring Jessica back.  I liked the way the episode ended right before that. When its like 'You’ve got to get my wife back.' I got chills when it happened. And then the actual episode. I love the 80s. I was playing the Pac-Man game between takes.

Abigail Spencer: There’s so many. I think for me, I have three different modes- I always point people towards Bonnie and Clyde for an intro episode maybe. Gorgeous – [Malcolm] had a storyline, the love component, Bonnie and Clyde – their personal relationship where you actually see...everything you love about "Timeless" and the way it looked, and the costumes, it was just gorgeous. If you want the fun- the fun aspect of 'Timeless,' watch Hollywoodland and if you want the real meat where the show has a way to change culture and change minds, I do think that the suffragette episode where we met Alice Paul and told her story. [The show] educated so many people and it seems so timely right now. If you want the message of timeless, those are the three episodes that I would direct them to."

Catch the “Timeless” tonight on NBC.

Artist Spotlight: Meet 'The Voice' Season 15 Champion - Chevel Shepherd

Chevel Shepherd, a 16-year-old female country artist from Farmington, N.M., was crowned champion of “The Voice."
The popular young singer from Team Kelly earned coach Kelly Clarkson her second consecutive “Voice” win on the musical competition series.

As for her name, Chevel, it stems partly from her dad's love of cars (he named her after a Chevy Chevelle), but also because he thought it sounded like a rock star name.

Could Shepherd join the ranks of other country music superstar women who are instantly recognizable by their voice or just by their name, like Reba, Wynona, Shania, Loretta or Dolly? Clarkson thinks so.

"She's unique,," Clarkson at a press conference after Shepherd's win. "She stands out. There’s a lot of people that can sing country music but not a lot of people are country music. Literally, they are almost born, like, coming out of the womb sounding like Loretta Lynn. There is an element that I do dearly miss about country music - women. There's like two of them on the charts, and also, it's just the fact that it's -- I want to actually expand upon that because a lot of those women changed my life. Like, Reba, Trisha, Faith, Martina Patty, The Judds, Wynonna when she went alone. All these women changed my life as a singer, and I think that's why I got so teary-eyed watching [Chevel] last night. It's like we need that. Little girls need people in every genre of music to look up to and to admire and to aspire to be and all of that."

Shepherd's original single is "Broken Hearts” was co-written by three of Nashville’s hottest songwriters – Shane McAnally, Ashley Arrison, and Aben Eubanks and has landed at #1 on the iTunes Overall Songs chart and the Country Songs chart.  




Shepherd's career is off to a good start, having dueted with Clarkson and later with rising Grammy-nominated country music duo Dan + Shay. Together, they sang the duo’s single “Speechless,” which is currently the #1 song on Billboard Hot Country and #1 on country radio. "Dan + Shay are amazing," Shepherd said about performing with the country duo. "They're the nicest guys you will ever meet, and Shay can really sing. So they both can sing really, really well, as you saw, and I wasn't nervous. They're so easy to get along with. You can be yourself, and [they are] just so down to earth and real."

Country music means a great deal to the 16-year-old she began singing at the age of 2.

"I've been listening to country music since I was tiny, tiny -- I'm still tiny, but tinier," Shepherd told TVMusic Network. "I just love the story behind it and how you can put yourself in the lyrics even if you haven't had your heart broken. You can really just tell the story of the song to people, and people really listen to that, and they really just relate to that. I love country music. I love the story
behind it, and it has so much heart."

"The Voice" Season 16 with coaches Clarkson, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and newest coach John Legend, premieres Monday, February 25, 2019 on NBC.

Black Sabbath, Julio Iglesias, George Clinton & Parliament-Funkadelic Among Honorees for Grammy Lifetime Achievement Awards

Recording Academy announces Special Merit Awards recipients
Photo:Recording Academy
The Recording Academy has announced its Special Merit Awards recipients. This year's Lifetime Achievement Award honorees are Black Sabbath, George Clinton & Parliament-Funkadelic, Billy Eckstine, Donny Hathaway, Julio Iglesias, Sam & Dave, and Dionne Warwick. Lou Adler, Ashford & Simpson, and Johnny Mandel are Trustees Award honorees; and Saul Walker is the Technical GRAMMY® Award recipient. A special award presentation ceremony and concert celebrating the honorees will be held on May 11, 2019, in Los Angeles.

The Lifetime Achievement Award celebrates performers who have made outstanding contributions of artistic significance to the field of recording, while the Trustees Award honors such contributions in areas other than performance. The Recording Academy's National Board of Trustees determines the honorees of both awards. Technical GRAMMY Award recipients are voted on by the Academy's Producers & Engineers Wing®Advisory Council and Chapter Committees, and are ratified by the Academy's Trustees. The award is presented to individuals and companies who have made contributions of outstanding technical significance to the recording industry.

From their power riffs to their dark, gothic imagery, Black Sabbath arguably invented the heavy metal signposts and influenced every heavy rock band that followed.

Among the most sampled acts of the funk/R&B era, George Clinton & Parliament-Funkadelic's spacey and masterfully played funk has laid the foundation for countless hip-hop hits.

Singer Billy Eckstine* helped break ground for African-American artists in the '40s and '50s as a distinctive jazz singer and bandleader who crossed over to an equally dazzling career in pop.

Donny Hathaway* was a versatile soul stylist who built his legend singing both urban protest songs as well as smooth, signature duets with the likes of Roberta Flack, despite his far-too-short career.

Perhaps the most successful Latin crossover artist of his time, Julio Iglesias became an enduring star on the world stage and Latin music’s most popular ambassador of his era.

Soul duo Sam & Dave (Sam Moore and Dave Prater*) were one of the primary chart stars at the Stax and Atlantic labels in the '60s, bringing the passion of gospel to their wailing soul sides.

Singing the songs of Burt Bacharach and Hal David in the '60s, and then scoring hits that bridged pop and R&B in the '70s and '80s, Dionne Warwick has carved out a unique and stellar career among pop/soul singers.

From the Monterey Pop Festival to L.A.'s iconic Roxy Theatre to the careers of the Mamas And The Papas, Carole King, and Cheech & Chong, among others, Lou Adler is one of music's most noted impresarios.

Nickolas Ashford* and Valerie Simpson were among the elite songwriting teams at Motown Records, penning modern classics such as "Ain’t No Mountain High Enough" and "You’re All I Need To Get By."

A versatile composer, arranger, and jazz musician, Johnny Mandel's credits include playing in the bands of Jimmy Dorsey and Count Basie and composing immortal movie and television music such as the M*A*S*H theme "Suicide Is Painless."

Saul Walker* was a career-long audio innovator, teacher, and mentor. From his early work in rocket telemetry to founding API in 1969, his designs continue to influence the music recording industry.

*Denotes posthumous honoree.
